Archeological finds from the Stone Age show that the Veldhoven area was already inhabited for thousands of years ago. Today, this is still visible at various sites. Local burial mounds, for instance, date back to the early Bronze Age. Throughout the townships Half Mijl and Toterfout, there are in fact sixteen mounds. Modern-day Veldhoven came about in 1921 when the following four parishes merged: Meerveldhoven, Veldhoven, Zeelst and Oerle. Over time, these towns had already established mutual relations with regard to clerical, judicial and municipality rule. The post-bellum reconstruction era literally connected these parishes. Still, each has retained its own identity. And this is what makes Veldhoven so unique.
